We wandered here while searching for a restaurant near where we were staying. The baked seafood fried rice is a must! It's unexpected, great seafood flavor with a cheesy mayo crust. We also enjoyed the soft shell crab roll. Two of us ate well for 25$. We liked it so much the first time we came back for dinner later... More

At $3 a plate its the cheapest sushi train we've been to in Sydney CBD and the quality is fair, not the best obviously- minor complaints being chewy nori and too much mayonnaise. The spicy salmon nigiri was really good though. In summary I think is a good place to go to a quick, cheap eat but its not worth... More

We had lunch here and it was good. They don't have a huge variation on the sushi train but it was a good lunch. I will eat there again.

I have been to Sushi Rio tens of times and the sushi is great. The chef's are good but the waitresses are disappointing. Today I went there for lunch and there was a grandma next to me who had 3 plates of sushi from the train. She wanted to order something from the menu, hailed the waitress and pointed to... More

This is one of the very few sushi trains that let you order your little dishes as much as you like, all for 3$ each, fresh and tasty right from the open kitchen in front of you. Love it.

Came here after reading so many good review about this place but then disappointed. Place was busy and service was good, however the sushi were very so-so and not as what we expected. It might be an affordable sushi place compared to other sushi restaurant in Sydney, but I was kind of regret eating here. For me it's just not... More

A friend of mine took me to Sushi Rio last year and it has since become my favourite go to Jap sushi train place. You can order anything you want from the menu and they will make it fresh, even if the items you ordered are available on the train. Most sushi plates are $3 (including scampi nigiri!) except for...

I love this place. Expect long queue during lunch/dinner time but it worth the wait. Last time I went they have special of $3 for all plates. Food is always yummy, fresh and quick. Try the handrolls.

This was the 3rd time dining here and we were not disappointed. The ingredients are fresh, the menu is interesting and the staff very polite and helpful. Be prepared to join a que around 7pm - but its worth the short wait. We'll be back!
